of people who have written and thought hard about the choices ahead. from washington, d.c., tom friedman, he is a columnist in for the times and cocoauthor of "that used to be us, how america fell behind in the world it e invented" and david brooks of the "new york times," he is the author of "the social animal." joining me in new york, tom brokaw, a special correspondent for nbc news and the author of "the time of our lives" a conversation about america. and jon meacham, the executive editor of random house and the author of the forthcoming book "thomas jefferson, the art of power." finally joining us, amy gutman, president of the university of pennsylvania and chair of the president's commission on bioethics and the coauthor of "the spirit of compromise" why governing demands it and campaigning undermines it. i'm pleased to have each of them here for this conversation. we obviously don't know who the new president is and we come forward with the premise that whoever it is, these are the issues and the choices and the challenges that face him. i'll start with you. what is it this new presid
: friedman, he's singing your song. pic up on tom's point, there's one word i keep coming back to when i think of the challenge of the next president and that is to make this a resilient country. resilience will be so important because if you look at the world in europe we're seeing today the crackup of the supernational state which is not working. in the arab world we're seeing the crackup of the nation state which isn't working there and the reemergence of the odest civil war on the planet, that between sunnis andhiis. and in china we're going to see the first chinese president have to deal with the biggest amount of political reform in a two-way conversation in a two-way conversation with the chinese people, 400 million bloggers. so xi jinping is going to have to navigate this new political reform in a two-way conversation. what i think of those three things, i think of one thing, i hope we can be a pillar of stability for this world. i hope we can be a resilient country. >> the good thing about that hope, tom, is that democracy is the most resilient form of government if only we, jon
's the fallout and the future of the gop? with us, tea-party backed congressman raul labrador, tom friedman, former white house chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, republican strategist mike murphy, and nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. with the president's national security team under fire over the petraeus resignation and the benghazi attacks, the president arrived on the world stage this morning for a summit in east asia, and he's got new worries on his mind about the prospect of a war in the middle east as israel and palestinian militants get closer to the brink this weekend. israel expanding its air assault against hamas and palestinian militants continuing to fire rockets into civilian areas of southern israel. that's where i want to begin this morning. i've got nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. who better to have to dis
's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. who better to have to discuss this. tom, as the two sides get closer to the brink, based on your experience and reporting, where is this going? >> let's just go around the horn, david, quickly. i think hamas is trying to use this moment to both break out of the blockade and try to end targeted killing of its leaders from israel, and trying to take advantage of the new arab spring balance of power, the muslim brotherhood in egypt, to leverage that possibility. israel. israel has been watching for the last six to nine months hamas bringing in longer and longer range missiles from iran. i think they saw this as an opportunity of necessity to take those out, missiles that can now hit tel aviv and jerusalem. egypt. this is a real problem for egypt. you have a new government there that needs money from the united states. they don't want to be caught in a struggle between israel and the palestinians. for iran, this is a godsend. it takes world attention off their nuclear program and puts pressur

troubles me. >> rose: friedman they're singing your song. >> to pick up on tom's point, there's one word i keep coming back to when i think of the challenge of the next president. and that is to ma this a rea silient country. resilience is so important because when you look at the world in europe we're seeing today the crack up of the super national state, the euro zone which is clearly not working. in the arab world we're seeing the crack up of the nation state whic clearly isn't working there and the reemergence of the oldest civil war on the planet between sunni and shiites. we see the biggest amount of political reform in a two-way conversation with the chinese people 400 million bloggers, okay. so he's going to have to navigate this political reform in a two-way conversation. when i think of those three things i think of one thing i hope we can be a pillar of stability for the world. >> the good thing about that hope tom is that democracy is the most resilient form of government, if only they really do tend to character as well as, you know, in our leaders as well as in the followers,
achieve unconventional results without employing unconventional wisdom. > > tom friedman of the times, also lawrence katz, labor economist at harvard, have said, yes, you need agile, nimble, quick-thinking, quick- to-change companies, but also a work force. > > that is exactly right. and the only way that happens is when the leader of the organization understands that they have four members of their constituency, four stake- holders, and those are the workers, those are the customers, those are the vendors and suppliers, and those are the shareholders. unfortunately, most companies act only in the interest of the shareholders. layoffs, plant closings, slashing product offerings. great companies, enlightened leaders who create adaptable, nimble, fast, re- inventive companies, are companies that say "we have to serve all four members of the constituency equally," and that's how you get the work force on your team. > > jason jennings, terrific. thank you so much. > > take care. thanks. thanks as always bill. up next, ways traders are positioning for potential profits on the so- called "f
heard panetta, those were gives. as tom friedman says -- the whole middle east erupts in one giant sound and light show of civil wars, states collapsing and refugee dislocations as the keystone of the region syria gets pulled under and the disorder across the neighborhood and you were worried about the fiscal cliff. >> governor? >> i think john is right about the personnel changes. this is the time. every administration goes through it. if you're re-elected you're going to have this turnover and this is the best time for it. we didn't want it before the election. john is right you don't want it five months down the road when your second term is under way. i want to terry a bit too, if it's all right to borrow from john. >> former governors of pennsylvania still have the right to issue proclamations. >> even in new york state, i don't think so. >> for pennsylvania in pennsylvania. >> a state unto itself. he issues proclamations all day long. >> i'm calling governor cuomo. >> you have a lot of loyal watchers and so i've declared this alex wagner and "now" down in the commonwealth of pennsy
you tom friedman and thank you david brooks. captioning sponsored by rose communications captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org th tavis: good evening. from los angeles, i am tavis smiley. tonight, what we can expect with a second term from obama in the white house. we have amy goodman. obama has to set a second agenda. aboutodman's recent book attacks is called "the silence and jordy." -- "the silenced majority." >> there is a saying that dr. king had that said there is always the right time to do the right thing. i just try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only halfway to completely eliminate hunger, and we have a lot of work to do. walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. tavis: for more tonight on the election of 2012 and what it means beyond the results, i am pleased to be joined by amy goodman. she is the host of "democracy now!" and her new book is called "the silent majority." s
: a look at where america is and where it's going. joining me, tom friedman, david brooks, tom brokaw, john meacham and amy gutman. >> i'm take within amy's comment that we've been campaigning in fiction and i would say extremely short fiction. it's been small and short. and so i guess the first thing i would do isi'd say you've got to draw a line between what we've been through and what we're about to go through. you have to make a clear statement that the election is past, i'm going to talk in a very different way, i'm going to talk in a much bigger way, i'm going to say we have three big problems, we have the debt problem, we have a growth problem, we have an inequality problem. they cross cut against each other and we're going to face this cliff pretty soon and so i'm going to do -- either what i didn't do or what president obama didn't do in the last four years, i'm going to lay out a plan. here it is, some people in my party won't beapp wit i, some people in the other party won't be happy but some will be intrigued in both parties, so here's my plan, let's work on this starting with m
: especially now. i heard it from tom friedman. most of the jobs for tomorrow will be jobs that will be created, not jobs that currently exists. >> guest: the prussian model started with the industrial revolution. we need more education people than an agrarian with the discipline of the assembly line but where there was also this activity that you had to implicate. you are doing this over and over again. one can debate whether it can be done but there was an element of instilling that indoctrination so people could be good workers but now -- before the pyramid was like this. a few workers would create the things and then you need the math of labor. now the pyramid is diverted where you be a lot of creative people and in fact most of the careers are creative focused and open-ended and you need very little physical labor. that reality we are training people for this wall we need you now, we need the opposite. >> guest: we are in the nations capital. do you have any advice? how can they bring this vision to life, understanding this? >> guest: it's an interesting question because we do meet with st

, and other people like tom friedman said it's going to take, like, 75 years he thinks for the middle east now to have a modern society. >> right. those are all i've been very good and valid points. i would just rephrase the first sentence, which he said that the egyptians voted against modernity. i would say that the egyptians voted for their own brain of motor navy, and that -- brand of modernity. and what we are seeing in the middle east is voters would like to see more religion in politics. and in turkey, i think we're seeing a country that is modernizing. it's middle class is growing. its wealthier, and its main party is an islamist party that is trying to create a pluralist immigrant society infused by islamic values. that's what the people of turkey want. i don't think it's our responsibility or obligation to tell them that they shouldn't want that. and i hope the turkish model succeeds because i think it would be a model for the rest of the region. and so that's part of what i think what we're witnessing is the different paths. now, you're right to say that they have a lot of tasks ahe
heard it from tom friedman. most of the jobs of tomorrow are going to be jobs that are going to be greater, not jobs that currently exist. >> guest: the prussian model started with the industrial revolution and the industrial revolution, we needed probably more educated people than we did in the a grand civilization. in people who could read the directions and have the discipline of december line and all of that. others also a certain passive you have to come into farms is a certain independence of freedom to. also in a factory are doing this over and over again. you know, one can debate whether it was explicitly done, but there was an element of filling that passively and indoctrination so that people could be good workers. but now we are in our reality -- before the pyramid was like this. they needed a massive lead. now the pyramid is kind of inverted where we need a lot of creative people. all of the real careers now are created focused and open ended and you need very few, very little physical labor. and in that reality, we are training people for this, while we need the

and florida. >> bill: tom friedman had a great column i believe in the "new york times" yesterday called my president is busy. where he really says that being that netanyahu has created a problem and the israelis will have to sort these out themselves in terms of their relationship. >> he's saying netanyahu if you think obama is going to get even now, he's not going to pay attention to you. he's got a whole lot of other things to do. this does set up something of a rift. you'll see this -- in contrast to the "new york times" editorial today. peace in the middle east has to start with the israelis and the palestinians unless they're ready, there's nothing we can do. "the new york times" editorial represents the other camp. there's always something become do. -- there's always something we can do. they're urging the president to get involved now. >> bill: you're talking about this morning's "new york times." >> this morning's "new york times" editorial. yes. >> bill: this morning's "new york times," the foreig
the state department or even within tom friedman and michael mandelbaum in the most recent book suggested the secretary of education in its competitiveness. to jim's point that a fulbright process comes to you have x number of slots and then you choose wisely, recognizing that sometimes he will and occasionally not so much so. we also have to recognize that just the mere fact that when you have a list of the 100 universities of the world, we dominate that list. as long as we dominate the list, were not just going to get fulbright's. we are going to get a significance of flow of students and as tom friedman has, as every student who graduates from an engineering college to get a visa stapled to his or her diploma. so understanding what are the strengths of our society, whether it's education, you know, science and technology and finding ways to leverage that not only for the benefit of our own students, but the benefit of foreign students is ultimately that appeal that as paul says gives us the benefit of the doubt. and so, part of our larger public diplomacy effort has to be continuing to
within the country to do that -- tom friedman back it up, please. i saw. i saw the first time. you guys were all in school at the time. let's just let things happen the way they are going to happen. what other people worry about their own country. we have not problems in this country. >> jim, did you have anything to say? >> yes, i do have one question i can ask, it was george w. bush who wanted to do the libyan intervention, would you have supported it then? >> yes. >> okay, let's do something related to military and foreign policy and that is the issue of military spending. many on the left criticize the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers
in the exiles, and we're going to pick legitimate people in the country, and tom friedman backs it up. please. i saw it the first time. you guys were all in school the first time, but even there you probably got the idea that it didn't work out so hot. let's just let things happen the way they're going to -- let other people worry about their own countries. we have enough problems in this country. >> jim, did you have -- [applause] >> yeah. no, that's fairly similar to my own view. >> okay. i do have one question i could ask bill. if it was 2005 and it was george w. bush who wanted to do the libyan intervention, would you have supported it then? >> with the u.n. >> okay. let's do something related to military and foreign policy, and that is, of course, military spending. many on the left criticize the right for wanting to spend more on the military, mitt romney has proposed we spend $2 trillion in additional spending while still saying he's going to balance the budget, the annual deficit's run between $1 and $1.5 trillion annually. i'll start with you, bill, on your perspective where we need to
of students as tom friedman has. every student debt graduates from an engineering college kids the visa stapled to his or her diploma. so what are the strengths of our society? not for the benefit of the of students but foreign students. is that appeal that gives us the benefit of the doubt. part of the diplomacy effort has to be competitive that brings the people to us. in the aftermath of 9/11 we made it harder for students to say we have to find ways to reverse the trend that we've had restored the flow of students from pre-9/11. it is in addition to the policy-making process this part of our national strength. >> p.j. crowley says something public diplomacy is not gestural this department or other agencies but also the citizens to play and the businesses and secretary clinton put a huge premium on commercial diplomacy getting businesses out there to be engaged with a positive impact i spent a lot of time since the left the state department working with business is in africana and we are under represented with just consumers' perception we're not as president as vr and other communit
